Kim Masters of THR (and KCRW's "The Business") won entertainment journalist of the year, and THR also won for best entertainment publication and best website. Editorial director Janice Min was given a special award for career achievement. In all, 15 of the 45 entertainment news organizations represented in the entries won, the Press Club says.

As we reported earlier, Jane Fonda picked up the club's first Visionary Award, introduced by Robert Redford. Actor Jeff Daniels wrote and performed a song for Fonda, and NBC 4's Robert Kovacik conducted an onstage interview of the actress.

The full list of winners will be online at the Press Club's website.
